Tasting notes:
'Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 L'Esprit de Chevalier offers up exuberant black cherries, blackberry and warm plums scents with touches of baking spices and tobacco. Medium-bodied, it has a firm, grainy texture and plenty of freshness supporting the generous, juicy black fruit in the mouth, finishing spicy.' – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 90/100

'Lovely, well-judged extraction here with a kick of spice and black cherry fruits. The body is rich and dark purple with a clear elegance to the core of the wine. The tannins are evident, and give an extra kick. Good quality. Drinking Window 2022 - 2034.' – Jane Anson, Decanter, 90/100

'This has a nice polished, rounded feel, with alluring tobacco and toasty cedar notes amidst gently mulled plum and cherry fruit flavors. Accessible in feel too. Drink now through 2027.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 90/100
